May Friends of Unity blog hop!




  This month we have an Angie girl, Challenge.  I absolutely love the Angie girl line.  I feel like the represent so many of us and are perfect for sending cards to our girlfriends.

This first card, has such a great Spring feel to it. Her name is Poppy Girl, I have used her cutting off the flowers too.  For this card I used a nice brick pattern paper that was in my stash. I did simple water color with Zig markers.   I cut her with a Pretty Pink Posh die. I cut that twice to add the blue edge to bring the color of her shirt into the card. Added a few Sequins and done. So, simple and easy. Add a sentiment or leave it blank. 



 As graduation season is right around the corner.   (My heart goes out to those Seniors effected by Covid-19)  I don't buy a lot of graduation stamps, as I don't have really anyone graduating any more, so I bought this set called SENTIMENTS FOR GRADUATES.   This way you have appropriate sentiments and can use whatever stamp goes with the grad.   One of my favorite girls graduates this year, So I wanted something that would reflect her.  I think I nailed it.  I absolutely love how this card turned out.



 What I did to add texture to the background paper, was Added some distress ink in grey around the edge.  I then took a stencil and added a design.   After that I went ahead and added some stars with Nuvo glacier paste in quick silver.  To finish off the card, I went ahead and added a film ribbon from Tim Holtz, and the 2020 from my stash. (sorry It's older I don't have a source)  I colored the image with copics.   For her shirt I flick the ink up leaving that sharp edge for a tie dyed look.  yes her hair is Blue, as the recipients hair is blue.  At least this week.  haha  This Angie girl is called Cierra girl

Both cards are done beautifully! I like how you used the die in the first card twice so that the blue color in the image was highlighted with the blue due edge. Love it!
